Among the most unusual pieces of Danish furniture design are Rolf Middelboe's mosaic tables for Tranekær. In the very best workmanship, using solid precious woods, tables were created for the highest demands. The table presented here was created using Wenge and Padauk wood, both very hard and durable and very easy to work with. Even after 50 years of use, the table is ideal for use and combination in modern interiors.
